Colton Crater and its surrounding rim. The highpoint is roughly in the middle. It is not the pointier peak to the right. That's a different peak

Going up

Look over at the highpoint

Walking up the final few feet

The top, looking south, Humphreys Peak in back

Now looking north, with SP Crater. Note how the grass leans the other way

Looking into the crater itself

On the hike out, SP Crater at left, Peak 7100 at right. In back is Gray Mountain, and the Navajo Nation

Walking down the grassy slope
